These findings cover fresh graduates, junior executives, managers, and supervisors. Jobstreet served 300,000 job candidates in Cebu out of 500,000 in Central Visayas. Over a thousand companies in Cebu are listed in Jobstreet, with 5,000 postings daily.
“The top three highest paying specializations (for fresh graduates) in Cebu are the same as with the rest of the country,” Jobstreet said. These are in IT and computer software; IT and computer network or database administration; and technical and help desk support.
Yoda Buyco, Jobstreet Philippines marketing director, explained that Cebuano IT workers are mostly employed by large BPO companies, which tend to offer higher salaries to attract more jobseekers.
In Metro Manila, IT workers are employed in different industries and in both local and foreign companies.
Even among junior executives or employees, those with one to four years of experience get a better average pay compared to others in the same level nationally.
